Boost your academic and clinical research with mucus analysis

Mucus is a gel formed by highly crosslinked molecular network of mucins, with various covalent and non-covalent bonds, leading to its viscoelastic nature!

Mucus is a viscoelastic gel that displays viscous liquid – and elastic solid behaviours. These viscoelastic properties provide relevant and reliable biophysical markers:

  • Patient stratification
  • Drug treatment efficacy and pharmacodynamics
  • Drug delivery efficacy
  • Medical device validation
  • Mucus and inflammation research

Mucus rheology will quantify the elastic, viscous and plastic properties of mucus!


Pathological mucus in lungs

Lung muco-obstructive diseases have been the most commonly targeted therapeutic area using mucus rheology. This therapeutic area includes:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cystic fibrosis (CF),
  • Primary Cilliary Dyskinesia (PCD),
  • Severe asthma,
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Other muco-obstructive diseases
